Dog Lodging

Luxury Pooch Lofts

Our Luxury Pooch Lofts are designed for the discriminating dog that prefers quiet privacy combined with a very personalized stay. Our luxury loft lodging area is limited to 18 enclosures. You may choose a large 8'x8' or grand 9'x10' loft for your dog(s). Luxury lofts include a raised cot, personal television, check-in gift, interactive toys, and a bedtime cookie.

Standard Lofts

Our Standard Lofts are a spacious 8'x8' or 6'x6' and are perfect for active dogs that will be playing and swimming during the day and just need a place to rest privately at night. Guests staying in our standard lofts will receive a comfortable mat to sleep on.

  • Padded lofts available for senior dogs or those with mobility issues.
  • Minimal furnishings provided. We encourage you to rent bedding from Urban Tails or bring your own comfy blanket and toys from home.
  • Multiple pets from the same family may share a loft with special discounted rates.

Cage-Free Sleepovers

It's a doggie slumber party! You can enjoy trips out of town with the peace of mind that your dog is having pleasant dreams sleeping over at Urban Tails. Cage-free sleepovers are reserved for our social Daycare dogs to snuggle in with their buddies. A murphy bed is available for first come first serve dogs, and we have plenty of beds on the floor for everyone else. Sometimes, space is so limited on the bed that our nighttime pet attendants end up on a puppy bed on the floor while the puppies have the big bed! Dogs requiring more privacy are encouraged to bunk down in our luxury pooch lofts. To ensure a comfortable and relaxed visit, it is important that dogs wanting to sleepover come to Daycare at least one time per month to play with their friends.

Day Lodging

Need a place for your pooch to hang out just for the day? Due to popular demand, Urban Tails offers Day Lodging in our luxury lofts during our regular business hours. Your dog will get a comfortable luxury suite with a cot and television, morning and afternoon playtimes in our indoor gym, an afternoon interactive toy to keep your pup's mind busy, three potty breaks and lots of fun! Grooming is available upon request.


Cat Lodging

Luxury Cat Suites

Our spacious cat suites are 3'x4'x6' and reputed to be some of the largest cat boarding suites in Houston. The cats have 4 levels to climb on as well as getting scheduled time out in the living area where they can climb on the cat posts, watch the fish, play in a tunnel or pretty much whatever they want to do. Only same family cats, if they play nicely together, are exercised in the playroom at one time. Each cat suite has its own scratch post, litter box, pillow and feeding dishes naturally. Features include:

  • Fun, interactive playtimes with lodging counselors available upon request
  • Ceramic bowls for feeding and constant supervision of your cat's diet
  • Health checks throughout the day
  • Discounts for multi-cat families
  • Combinable suites for extra room

Getting Started

If you live in the Houston area and you're ready to get started, call us at (713) 658-0900 or complete and fax to us the pooch personality form prior to the day you need to drop your pet off. On occasion, we may request that your pet make a short visit to our facility prior to their first lodging stay. Each dog has a unique personality and based on information provided in the dog profile, we may require this to ensure our facility can safely lodge your dog and that they will be 100% comfortable during their stay. After your first visit, all we need at check-in is for you to review the activities and feeding instructions, provide any vaccination updates, and your Healthy Pet Guarantee choice.
